to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united states. that we take some of the money we are saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america, and that we reduce our deficit in a way that makes us ablet -- that makes it able for us to create critical investments. it is up to you. are we going to go from the top down, which is what got us into this mess, or do we embrace the new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney. >> thank you, jim. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. appreciate the university of denver and their welcome. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most dramatic place you could imagine, here with me. so congratulations.

to control more of our own energy did that is the second part of our plan. after 30 years of doing nothing, we raised fuel standards so that by the middle of next decade, your cars and trucks will go prices far on a gallon of gas. as far on a gallon of gas. [applause] that will save you money and will be good for our economy and is good for national security and it is good for our environment. [applause] we doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar here in nevada and all across the country. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and solar panels and long-lasting batteries. today the united states of america is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have got a choice. we can reverse this progress like governor romney wants to do, or we can build on it. unlike my opponent, i am not going to let the oil companies write our energy plan. i'm not going to let oil companies collect corporate welfare from our taxpayers. we have a better plan where we invest in wind and solar and farmers and scientists
million new jobs. my energy independence policy means 3 million new jobs. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and small business creates 7 million more. expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. that is the candidates and their plan for creating jobs, particularly in manufacturing. eric morath is an economy reporter for "the wall street journal." chris savage is back of the table -- nice to see you, mr. savage. how much leverage does the president have in creating jobs in the manufacturing sector? guest: it is difficult for them to directly see these numbers go up and down. we have seen the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest man
, respond to what she said. >> regarding oil, if anybody thinks by raising taxes on energy producers will not be passed on, they will pass all of those off to our motorists and homeowners and everybody knows that. if you want to have a comprehensive discussion about energy, we should have it, a true all of the above approach. she is against the keystone pipeline. she is also against -- in favor of wind and solar, but we need more of an approach in that. let me talk about the buffet rule as well. the buffett rule, it funds the government for a day. more importantly, we have our own buffett rule in massachusetts. when she has been talking about everybody paying higher taxes, she had a choice to pay higher taxes herself, and she chose not to do that. number three, all of her criticisms on me is i do not want to raise taxes. that is correct. i do not want to raise taxes on any american in the middle of recession. when i go to businesses, they do not say take all my money and bring it to washington. they say we have been taxed and regulated enough, and the only person here who is a fiscal
care system that is broken, energy policies that are not working, because 10 days ago, john said they are sound. >> say to him?

. they are disgusted. they are disgusted with that lack of progress on a long list of growing problems, energy problems, environmental problems. our health-care system, our tax system. our regulatory policies. washington has taken another five-week vacation. it took a five-week vacation in august, worked two weeks, taking another five-week vacation. if these people did a better job, they would not have to take some much time off to campaign, raising money, because if they did a good job, people will reward you. when you do not do a good job, you have to spend a lot more time doing that. >> de you think we would be better off with a parliamentary system, where one party to control things for a time, and we did not have to deal with a republican house, a senate of democrats, so we are always at this gridlock? we kind of let the supreme court make the decision because the politicians cannot do it. >> we need to work at bath, but i have no idea how, because as you know, that is the way it is. it is human nature to maintain the status quo until the things get terrible. then people get flexible. that is the
down the cost of fuel and energy and gas prices. in our restaurants, they have to pay more for food than the deliveries. we have to bring down these costs and make our small businesses viable. >> limit tell you how this recession has affected me -- i have fought even harder for the people i represent. i committed my life to public service because i saw my neighbors out of work. i saw my family being denied health care. when this recession hit, i turned up the volume on fighting for connecticut manufacturers. i founded the buy america caucus, dedicated to making sure our tax dollars stay in the united states. i stepped up the volume when it came to making sure the social safety net was there for the people of this state who were out of work, whether it's a unemployment benefits for health care for them and their kids. i fought even harder in the public arena for people who needed help. how did this recession affect linda mcmahon? in 2009, her company took $10 million in state tax credit designed to create jobs. at the same time, she laid off 10% of the workforce and made $46 million
to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada. >> mitt romney has also talked about labelling china as a currency manipulator. would that be productive? i
and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and long- lasting batteries. the united states today is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have a choice between a plan that reverses this progress or one that builds on it. my opponent said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in tax subsidies every year. we have a better plan that we keep investing in wind, solar, and clean coal, where construction workers are retrofitting homes so they waste less energy, and we can develop a supply of natural gas that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs and we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. that will be good for our economy, for colorado, and that will be good for america, and that is wh
was wondering if you thought it was the way they came out and the energy that they had or if what they're saying has as big an effect as the perception of how they're doing and how excited they are to be there. >> well the first observation is clearly aarp is lowered because it's membership age. i think the body language is important and i think that the president hurt himself with that. i don't think that the romney side should think that he's going to be like that in the next debate. i think they'll look at that and think that's not what we wanted to project. but at the same time, you can go back to the tape and break it down like a football game, romney had a lot of good points that he got across and i thought from a policy standpoint, i thought it was pretty rich. when people are complaining that this got too much into policy and too deep in the woods, well usually the complaint is there's not enough substance, it's too style oriented. so i think from that standpoint, it was a pretty good debate for the american people to see a lot. the one difference i think was that clearly mitt romney cam
and empowering our workforce for the jobs that are available. lastly, it develops a comprehensive energy plan so we can put people back to work while we are protecting our economy and being energy independent. i spent time developing my plan. you have no plan and i think the people of connecticut want to know what we're going to do for them. >> thank you. 30 seconds to rabat. >> linda mcmahon should stop spreading fiction. she made her living making up stories in the wrestling ring. but it's not ok to make them up when you're running for the united states senate. my plan is rooted in the work i've done in private service. focusing tax cut on the middle class, not as linda mcmahon does by focusing tax cut on the affluent and the rich. my focus is reinvesting in the educational system, not the funding are most potent asset in the state. >> the next question is for mrs. mcmahon. >> is the public being well served by the quality of the nature of this campaign? yes, we're here today in a formal debate and you to our public going to answer a dozen questions. but both of you have failed a basic standar
desire to vote, do so. energy needs to be put into social movements in which we demand what we want in our own lives rather than putting our faith in elected officials and hoping they do what we want. specifically, for a contemporary example, the students in quebec were on strike for months when there was a tuition hike that they said was unacceptable. they said, we will not pay. we will be in the streets until you get rid of this ridiculous hike. they tried to make protests illegal. the tuition hike did not go through and the law was repealed. >> would you please ask a specific question? >> i know. this is terrible. my question would be, what do you see as the value of movements for political change? >> thank you for that example. we realize that the reason i was asked to testify before members of congress was because of my work on such a social movement. there were students on our campus who organized to address this concern with our insurance. they saw that georgetown was providing an subsidizing contraception on insurance for their employees, but not for students, even students
